Fuel Your Creative Side with Intarsia Artistry

With wood as your medium and a few common shop tools, you’ll be filling your palette with enough colors to create your own unique work of art. 

This intarsia mountain scene is a classic case of planning one thing on paper, but achieving something else entirely.

I originally envisioned a winter scene, and had included several trees with snow-laden branches in the foreground. Because my drawing didn’t represent what was in my head, I redid those trees at least a dozen times before realizing it wasn’t the trees I didn’t like, but the fact that they were covering up the mountains in the background. Refocusing on the mountains led to the project presented here.This is one of the things I like most about an intarsia adventure. Nobody knows what the original was supposed to look like, for all they see is the end result.
